|My wife and I both have very busy schedules. We both
carry a PDA with us to manage that busy schedule, and we both carry
different brands of PDA. My wife prefers the PalmV and I prefer
either my HP Jornada 548 or my HP Jornada 680. And, since my wife's
and my schedule depend on each other so much, it is imperative that we
keep our schedules in sync. I have tried the various Palm to
PocketPC / Windows CE applications and have not been pleased with any of
them, until I tried SyncTalk.
This amazing program has the features of several of the other IR
Transfer programs with a few added "perks." The most
amazing feature is that you can select several appointments, a contact,
and a couple memos, and transfer them all as one "package."
SyncTalk is available for the Palm, PocketPC and Windows CE platforms.
The PocketPC / Windows CE version of the software has the option of
being able to transfer the Palm version of the software to a Palm Pilot so
that communication between the two can be established. This is very
nice when you are on the road and you have an associate that has a Palm
and you want to transfer information.
The User Interface is simple and very self explanatory. You can
view Appointments, Memos, or contacts. Select the items that you
want to transfer and add them to the outbox. You can then go tot he
next section, select the items you want and add them to the outbox.
You can then view your outbox to verify the contents prior to
sending. Once you are ready, align the IR ports on the two devices
and send. All the items in the Outbox are sent to the other device
as one package. That user is them prompted to accept the package and
add them items to their appropriate databases.
You are not limited to sending data between Palm and PocketPC / Windows
CE. Palm users can send to other Palm users, as can PocketPC /
Windows CE users to other PocketPC / Windows CE--the greatest advantage of
SyncTalk is the fact of being able to send data from Appointments, Memos,
and Contacts all at one time.
SyncTalk retails for $29.95 and can be purchased by going to http://www.synctalk.com.
A trial version of the software can also be downloaded from this
site. It will be the best $29.95 you spend on your Palm or PocketPC
/ Windows CE device.
